Abstract:

Collection of legal and business documents pertaining to the affairs of numerous members of the Medici family and their relationship, often tumultuous, with other aristocratic families (including the Altoviti; the Risaliti; the Gianfigliazzi; the Guadagni; the Quaratesi; the Samminiati; the Ceccherini; the Capponi; and many others); Florentine merchants (especially those belonging to specific guilds, such as the Arte della seta, also known as Arte di Porta Santa Maria, the Arte del cambio, and the Arte della lana); and local and Italian banks and financial institutions (including the Medici Capponi bank and the Florentine mint, as well as the Monte di pietà). The majority of the items are legal documents, in particular trial proceedings and associated notes, petitions, letters, and complaints, for the many prolonged lawsuits the families brought against either their own relatives or business counterparts. Among these trials, some of the longest and most complex are the one between the heirs of Bernardo de' Medici, Carlo and Alamanno, over the possession of a silver cross with an encased relic, supposedly wood from the Holy Cross (1602); of various members of the Gianfigliazzi family against Vincenzo de' Medici (1658) for multiple unpaid debts, including part of the dowry for his wife, Smeralda Gianfigliazzi; between Andrea de' Medici and Benedetto Quaratesi, (1619) who had allegedly been promised that Andrea would cover the payment of his dowry, as well as offer him a generous share of the profits of the silk workshop he owned (Andrea disputed this agreement once Quaratesi got married); and between the city of Florence and the Monte di pietà against the bankers Neri Capponi and Andrea de' Medici (1630), concerning tax collection and payment, and miscellaneous debts. Sometimes appeals to or involvement of the Grand-dukes also occurred during the trials. The financial documents in the manuscript, which include accounts, credit records, memoranda, receipts, and reports, concern many crucial areas of the Florentine economy, ranging from guilds and their activities (primarily trade and manufacture), to banking (with particular attention to the Medici Capponi bank and its financial operations in Italy and in various European markets), to small businesses, like stores and workshops. In certain cases genealogical information about a specific family is given. Other miscellaneous documents pertain to sale, purchase, and lease of real property in Florence and in the surrounding areas; petitions; and reports concerning farm management and produce harvest.
